You may be wondering why is Boy George here on the Tovey blog? Simple answer: George is a friend of Russell Tovey and he also happens to follow @Tom_In_Oz_ (me) on Twitter. He has been a supporter of this blog for a long while. George doesn’t really need much in the way of promotion but I asked him if I could put on some of his private family photos on the blog and he graciously agreed.
Some preloved Wikipedia information about Boy George:
Boy George (born George Alan O'Dowd on 14 June 1961) is a British singer-songwriter who was part of the English New Romantic movement which emerged in the early 1980s. He helped give androgyny an international stage with the success of Culture Club during the 1980s. His music is often classified as blue-eyed soul, which is influenced by rhythm and blues and reggae. He also founded and was lead singer of Jesus Loves You during the period 1989–1992. Being involved in many activities (among them song writing, DJing, writing books, designing clothes and photography). He was a DJ before he was a singer and still works tirelessly at being a DJ in various international venues to this day. He constantly reminds people his DJing led to his singing career not the other way round.

Toby Whithouse speaks about supernatural drama
Being Human creator Toby Whithouse has said that the show will be "reinvented" on its return next year.
BBC Three's hit supernatural flatshare drama has been confirmed as coming back for a fourth series, but without major character Mitchell, played by Aidan Turner.
His vampire character was staked in the series finale, since Turner has been cast in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit.
Whithouse told NME about the challenges faced to the format of the show at the weekend's Kapow Comic Con in London. "We're reinventing it to an extent, it will have to be a different animal in some ways," he said.
Earlier on at the panel session Whithouse explained that producers had been surprised to hang on to Turner for as long as they did. He said: "When you have someone who’s that talented, and who looks like that, you know that you’re not going to keep hold of them forever... there was no ill feeling on either side."
He also hinted that Lenora Crichlow's ghost character Annie could be taking more of a central role next year. "It's been mentioned a few times about just how powerful Annie is," he said. "We're going to be exploring that."
